German Hospitality at T iryin Bay?Cheap Quarter t ? What Emigrant) Want. The i'Muier Northern light reached Punta Arerai ?Mr); on Saturday morning, the 2d inst., and her passen gers at ones embarked on small stern wheel boats up the xi ver. The water of the San Juan, at this season, is ex tremely low, atd travellers suffer all the delays and relation experienced on the Ohio at low water, together with an addi'.icnal hardship ? the impossibility at pro etui eg provisions on the rirer craft. The hardships < f the tiip up the San Juan, on tbe las Voyage from. Jvew York, were peculiarly severe. The dlsta&ee from Greytown to Granada is usually accom rJ'rhtd in about thirty six hours, but the pasi eager* tn the Northern Light only reached this city on Wednee day, the Oth, during whfoh time they were subjected to tbe alternative of hunger, or compliance with the exor bitant charges mate for the most ordinary edibles. Thi prioes aemsnced overreached those of California in its ?test exhoibitant days, to wit : ? For a cracker, usually known a< haid bread, one dime ; for a loat of bread, not an la: ge and abo.it a ? solid an a brisk, half a doiltr ; miserable colTee, without milk, a dime (or a small siad cup ; tea or milk not to be procured ; and, notwithstand ing it was wsii known that the pass?ugers would be upon the liver and lake boats for several days not the leas; preparation wab made to meet the demand for food. Had it not fortunately occurrel that a detachment of soldiers, bound for this city, embarked at Castillo rapid, wh< shot dowu and dressed a bullock the third da/ on Che liver, the tiip would bava ended in famine ? for the in difference ot the oflicers or managers of the boats was most st'ete It is proper to say, however, that the time oonsumed 1n the tiip 1 have just concluded is a great oxesotion to the rule ? adiyanJa half being ample time. It irould fee well, however, for those passenger* whose mo una are limited, or who have ladles in charge, to put up a box of provision.!, on leaving the steamship, and thus avoil tbe heavy charges made on the boats and at the Sastiil > hotels, ahete M.e dollar per meal is exacted for raisera Me bod. The or ly point of importance on the San Juaa river is Ca*tiI!o, whe:a we remained about eighteen hours. This placets garn.-cned by a detachment of the Niearacuin army, ana comands the San Joan river above and bolow the rapida. 1 spent a couple of hours In and about the old Spsniih oaatle at this place, oonstructed about ih-ao hundred Tears ego, to defend the then wealthy cities of Granada aud l<eou l'rom tbe approach of the buoiane'ira ?o long ths terror of Central America and the Isthmus. The castW is no longer occupied as a military post, and Is interesting only as a specimen of the architect* ratabi lity of the eailier cays of Spanish ruli on this continent. Its walls are but slightly damaged by tha several sieges it ba< sustained, and time makes little ioiprefsion upon tbe massive stones, durable cement and superior ma sonry tbat mailt the construction. The Castillo rapids are the oo.'y obstructions to the navigation of the San Juan, except at very low water, wben, as on this voyage, the Maobuca and the Tcro rapids also require boats of light construction, drawing about twenty inches of wa ter. Tbe lske boats are reached at a point ca the San Juan about thirty miles trom the lake, from whsnet the passage is direct to Vlrgia Bay, thei.ee to Ornu*da. On airivirgat Vi-gin Hay, we found the wind t>o hlgli to jeitrit landing at night, and the steamer run over to the lee cf Madura Islana, or properly sneaking, Ometepec, where we rode at anchor daring the night and the next morning lanceJ about one hundred soldiers on the inland to get proritions. I took rccaiion to land with them and Vas most hospitably received by Mr. Msyer, a German, who is engeg'd supplying i he steamers of the Traosit Company wl h woor. Mr. Meyer is a fine specimen of itia iac<- aLd is facetiously styled the "King of Ometepec." and bis hospitality to some half doxen passengers who landed and spent tilt night and next day with h'm, was truly regal. Chickens, teef, vegetables and fruit, were served np and disappeared in a trice, and bountiful llba tlons of oeff?e and tea were poured out con m? h/> giut'o. The soldiers coasumedthe larger part of a beef slaugh tered fcr tht occasion and I was informed by Ctptti" Far Bum of the New York regiment, that the charge for the entire acc< mmodatlon, including pro vie lent for pas iengars acd soldiers, awards of one hnidred in number, was only eighteen dollars. Virgin Bey derives its rhief importance as a depot of the Transit Company, and on the arrival of the boats presents a very busy aspect, the streets being crowded with mules, horses ana stages to convey California passengers. The Company have in progress of construction a wbarf which Will tx'end out about fifteen hundred feet when B.mpleted; the landing is very inconvenient, owlug to the prevailing wind blowing towards ths chore and raising waves very siniiar to tho.'e upon the Western laires of the United States. From Virgin Bay to Granada tha passage is quite Mgreeab'e, and occupies only feu* hours. On th* island ti Ometepec are two high mountain peaks, rising like pyramids ft cm tbe lake, and as we approach (Jranada anotbtr ptsk, tbe Maubache, rises, marking an outline ?gainst the blue sky which is already indeltbly fixed on ?y mind. We reached Granada at sunset on Welne.iday the 6th Inst., on thu fourteenth day from New York. Passengers trom tbe United SUtes should provide themselves with a good blanket for use on the river beats, where the only protecion afforded is the deck above and cur'aius on the sides, and the night air on the river is otlen d?tnp. I have convetsei with very many old mershants here, and find that the usual time occupiei in the voyage ; f 'is (iieytown to Granada is thirty hoar*, ani the only charge oi beats or delay at tbe Castillo rapid*. Befire this letter reaches you the river will be iaeretsedin v&ume suflii-iently to r(ud*r tbe navigation mare expe ditious and passengers by tbe steamers of March and the subsequent months, will find the journey quite ple?-an', and tbe tiip accomplished befoie the excitement of a change from the steamship and ocean aaviga'.ion to a river boat aid tropical scenery his worn iff; and the speedy termination cf the voyage will give little oppor tunity 'or boat-stewards or offl-.ers to extort exorbitant prices from hungry travellers.

The cm desinence of til* is the crowding ot all business and residences towards the p^ata, and a great Increase of rent*.

All that has bee 11 said of the fertility of the soil and the nature of its productions is quite corieit; the one thing needful is if de relopement. when tha* U effected by the in flux of fettlera, this country must become the Paradlee of North Americi. The climate is delightful, and though I arrived In mil"- summer, and the dry season, I have not yet expei lecced the heat of * New York summer's day, while at night the air U tool and comfortable; tor my own part, all I want is a good bed to rest as pleasantly as In my own home in your cl'y. 1 have tecured a hou.+e, which, although requiring many repairs, is yet a decent plaoe; the roosts, three in number, aie one hundred feet in lecgth, by twenty-Are wile, whi'e on two sices of the inner court yard Li a fine, portico, fifteen feet wide; attached to the house is a largt yard, with a well and stone trough. The eutlie groun 1 of my house covets a space of three hutdied feet long by cne hundred and fifty feet wile.

I bare now been in the Territory of Nicaragua about tro weeks, and in this city over a week, daring which time I uare bad a good opportunity to teat the climate, as far a* warm weather is concerned, and at no time yet have I experienced an approach to a melting summer's day of New York; the sweltering night of a Northern iu miner are here unknown, from the fact that window glan is not known heie, and light and air being admitted by windows closed only by wooden shutters, the tempera ture muRt be oxtremely even. The city of Granada is in a healthy condition, the only Meknese among the Americans being the insults of late iu peranceaxd imprudence, consequent upon bad habits. The streets aie quiet at night, and one may walk from the lake shore to the suburbs with leu* fear for personal safety than is generally felt during a walk of such a din tance in the city of New Yoik. The native population are very little sren after dark, and prefer to tit under their cool porticos in the inn ?r court yards, rather than to promenade the utrae'.s Morning and evening the lake is resorted to by all claseas tor bribing, and lorg fli<w of tall enc gr&oefn i native wo men are ooaetentiy pasting to and from tie lake, in the c< rnirg an l evening, bearing; huge jars of wator ou the r heat's, which lis ay carry with a nonchalance and ease which ecaiiie* them to dispUy no little amount or co quetiy, wituout disturbing the burden they beu\ la bet, the liesd of the native is the reaspta^le of every ?[ t? ies t?f lurcen, from a saucer to a bale of goods, and enter atticlt appears to set upon tbo bead with perfect secuuty to both burden and bearer. Mary families and the government cilices art now sup Stied witk water from a cart manned and equipped by a ew Yorker, whese face as an ex-policeman on Broadway is qui'e lan.iliar to me, and well known at the old "Tea Room." A foice pump at the lake would easily supply the demand! ot t-e citv, and at half the ia es now re ceived lor water would be a lucrative business. I pay my ex-poiice fiiend at the rate of five cent* per pall (two gallons) for water, and if tt is brought by the natives the difference In the expense is but trilling. The lake water 1* ured icr blinking and cooking purposes, while for cat tle and waih water near y evety house has a well, which furnishes hard water not considered fit to drink. findless chain pumps vculd be patronized, and at once supersede tbe rop?, pulley and bucket now in use. All purchases of foid and provisions are made in the p'aza, on the rhady side cf wtii ;h crowds of native wo men, in piciuiesque at ire, vend every species of uod, fiuit and dolces (sugar candies and sweetmeats). Aitund and among thj mvrons and maideos are sores of Utile dark-skinned and hlaca-eyed boys and giria, gene rally destitute of clothing, unless one is fcrtunate enough to obtain a straw hat. which artiste alone generally com pletes the full dress tf a child. My cook has a fine, intel ligent tcy, about seven years of age, who generally cones prancing into tht couit yard about mealtime moantei en a stick fcr a horse, and displays bis clean tan-colored skin to fine advintsge. l'edro is a favorite already, and comes for hie share of diilcet at every meal. All the chil dren heie have Immense protruding bellies, of true Fall s's IV, an proportions, produced by eating Urge quantities of fruit especially the plantain, wtik-h fried or boiled is tht i ole food of the children, and tb?f cbiet food of the naliTe adults and is indeed a very nourishing aad palata ble article. ) would lecommond any ''lean and hungry Css.ius" of your civy who desiies to become a candidate for alder manic honors at the text elec ion, to visit this crtuntry, and Kuaran'ee that in a fjw months he can return to New York with a rotuoity of figure worthy of the al dermen o* yore, and at a much cheaper rate than turtle saipdiet. Gianada has now one good hotel, kept by an Ameri can. and ee.v?ral iestauran's, where mi-al.s can be obtain ed furaUhed with all the products of the country. A lew American stores have beeu opene and the prospect is pucourag'rg for the esta illshmentof a heavy commer cial business. The mili'ary force have a dress parade eveiy day at 5 1'.

General Walker is very highly esteemed by all par Jen bfie, the citizens respect liim, and he is idolizei by the toldlers. Every native with whom 1 have had any converiation is .-alifiicd with the condition of things, and speaks in high terns of praise of General Walker. A* for the General, I can say but little from personal knowledge. I have hail the honnr of several inteiviews, and havo learned to admire him. He is constantly pressed wi.h business, and yet. des patches It with perfect tranquillity; is quite deliberate in speech and movement, and seems to weigh well evrry word to speaks or hears, and to scrutinize every move ment. He is of small figure, sandy liatr and co-ap'extnn , blue eyes, rather inclined to n haz?l, and it perfectly un - os'eiitajo is in diess, manner anl action, and seems ware uisin the ?aine mould which has produce 1 to the world men qualified for ootinsel and command. His sue c?fH is decided, snd if l'rov'dence spttres bim, as a leading ttind in this Stale, 1 am confident that Niiarngun will In a ,-hort time take a rank among nations that will be the envy of older States. Wi'h tbe civil gevernment of Nicaragua I h??e as yst made litt.'e acquaintance. Martial law has prevail d siace the entiance of General Walkap, and as peace wi'.b ic nnd without the State was the ti*t requisite, the ml'i tary regime was the natural result. 1 understand steps a e about being taken towards the organization of a civil givernnunf. bused upon a constitution and laws sin-Pur to those of the States of the North. Wn?n this ia accomplished and the dls-enH^ns of p?rty ar? snUied at the ballot box rather than by the .sword, climate, s di, resources, agricultural and mineral, aud tho vast Held for enterprise, will in a few mouths till the country with ?migrants of a class calculated to raise the State to pror ferity. A laige lumber of those who came out. ou tie Northern Mght cn i!4 h of January, have foil ad e-nploy Knrit under tlie Roveinment and are highly satisfied wi'li thefr fitua'ions and prospects. Real eetate i.? quite low io this city, and vast fortunes lnukt be made by capilaHxts who tmblrk tn tbat line; houres ate wanted, snd increiving emigration mtist soon build tip the K'paraely inhabited district between the city a nd the lake.

The city ol Ollllw mus'. become tbe business eentre of the State; it is the Lead of ihe Uk? commerce, ou the direct line of travel nnth anil se.uth from Costa Rlsa to Honduras, and the point of debarkation of all travellers and emigrants. < npiti 1 and enterprise will hasten the work of improve neu1 already commented, and the first to nnbark in It w.ll realize the earliest and richest fruits of tbsir labor. a, ( Amun fUrrM, Nicaragua, Feb. 18, 1856.

The truth is, this land always belonged to Nicaragua, and she never for one moment relinquished her olaim to It There never was, before this, any power here to oppose the rluiculous pretention* of England or aseert the rights of this State ? hence her boldness and audacity ia setting up a claim to even a proteeterate over this Me*quke territory.

[From El Nicaraguen-e, Feb. 1?] Mr. Marcy must lecl bewildered ? be occupies a posi tion similar to that of a man who once invented ? ma cliir.e to i epnrate the flenh from the bones of tho ft-h, but which acted contrary and almost killed tha inventor by throwing the bones down bin throat and the meat out or doom. The results o? hi* opposition to Nica-agua have produced equally contrary results. The lorceof hie enmity expended itr-eli in the first apa?m, and to day the reaction bears him down. He U laughed at 'or his opposition to tte progessive destiny of the rase? hired at it* results ? atd the quality ot his talents impwred by its manifest inconsistency with the past policy ot the United States government- But his lias been a life of errors, and tbis is but one more added to the list he must ^*Nfa?r?gna, however, h?s no cause to complain. 8he lias promp'iy 1 emoted the ianult by cutting off all inter course with the government Mr. Marcy represents; and, by the same act, she has reserve- 1 to hersell the rig a: to 1 evoke the tieaty heretofore concluded between the two iro*?ri>mf nta, and wltich *as moat faYorab*? to tho United States. She Is also in a position to offer lavorable terms to European Powers; and the existing government of this repub'ic is sufficiently catlonal and patriots to cous der the most auspicious terms that may present themselves loi its action. The a^ministia ion of Piesicent 1 lerce will And, v hen orobably it is too late, that It has mistaken tie oharac er et tbis peopls, In supposing Nicaragua would quietly submit to the interference of Mr. Marcy, or at most, would content herseir with issuing an indignant proclamation. But tima will direct this impression. The government of thu re pub'.ic is In the hands of statesmen who*) words ? re fewer than their action* ?whote diplomacy Is as just as it is national; and, with whom foreign nations must treat as with men jealous of their country's Insert an! esietm. The policy ot the State, bo long held In abeyance, must now take shape and consistency. The government is stable and its course progressive. Eoonomy and en terprise within, and a liberal and fraternal spirit with ont. It looks to a participation in the commerce of tu world and seeks an extension of its comity among th nations. We offered the first fruit# to the U uited States, but Mr. Marcy could not understand the generous offir, and wantonly deprived his country of i's benefits. We tie now fiee to make terms with F.ugland, Franoe or Cermany equally favorable. They with our trade we ask their money. Thev seek to shorten the dis tance to Canton, tan Francisco and talparalso? we offer the only manner andtfthe grand, st inducements to its accomplishment.

A NEW CITY ABOUT TO BE BUILT. (From Kl Mcaragueuse. Keb. 2.] Tbe pl?n of a new town, or at lea t an exteneinn of the present city, is at present being Mtrvcyed between the city of Grarada snd tbe lake of Nicaragua. Thejaite se lected in about fifteen feet lower than that of the present city, and Is much more convenient in every respect for the wit nt* of an inland emporium. Granada, In time, niuet be tbe chief seat of traue for tbe interior of Nicara gua, and it la but complying with tbe priapectiT* wants it tbe State, to commenco the work of moulding it for a more extensive usefuIceM. Tbe new site Is convenient sor commerce, being on the immediate border of tbe lake: the soil Is capable of b< ing cultivated to any extent; and tb.' giound ia aa level as tbe site ot Philadelphia A beau- ' tiful system i? public atreeta and squares cam he laid oat, sod as the government possesses tbe land, we do not doubt but tbe new municipality will be sufficiently endow ed to enable it, with a judicious expenditure of the public wealth, to construct such works of necsaniy and ornament as may be deemed desirable.
